Melbourne Demons vs Carlton Blues Odds

Melbourne Demons vs Carlton Blues Preview

The Blues covered the line last week against the Western Bulldogs and with a similar line against the Demons this round, The Wolf thinks they’ll do it once again.

Melbourne has won the last five against Carlton with three of the last four decided by less than 10 points but the Blues clearly play reasonably well against the Demons covering the line in six of the last seven games they’ve met.

Carlton have managed to keep their losses small in 2021, with their greatest losing margin just 28 points from their five losses, but the question beckons can Carlton possibly get past the Demons based on how many points they concede?

In five of the last six the Blues have played at the MCG they’ve conceded 95+ points and if that happens again you can already pencil in an ‘L’.

Carlton will make a game of this and could potentially inflict Melbourne their first loss of the season but the likely outcome is a close win for the Dees.
